How do you feed a family of 5 with 2 leftover chicken breasts? Well, I’m happy to say I’ve partnered with Minute® Rice to bring you this easy Jambalaya recipe that uses up leftovers, tastes absolutely amazing and by adding in some rice I was able to create dinner for 5!

You can use just about any ingredients you have on hand to make this dish. In the past, I’ve used ham, bacon, and even pork. This time around I’m using chicken, shrimp and hot links since this is what was leftover from our family BBQ yesterday.

Adding in Minute® Rice helps me add a lot more substance to this dish. Remember I have 5 people to feed! Minute® Rice also helps me take this normally time-consuming dish and cook it in under 30-minutes. Win!
